Hi people, appologies for the title of my previous post, as I did not read the "Hardware Sticky" note at the top and I am also new to this.
I bought a Plextor PX-810SA DVDRW drive and I only realized my mistake when it arrived and the connection were different. I only have IDEs on my mobo and no SATA, so I thought, how the hell am I gona do this now. Well, I bought an IDE to Serial ATA Motherboard Adapter from StarTech (PATA25ATA) and the converting cables for the power supply etc.
I got to a stage where by the drive comes up on the boot up and it is also recognized in the BIOS but nothing comes up on Windows My Computer.
Can please anyone hlp me... Any suggestions... any tips...anything would be very much appeciated.
All the best to you guys and I hope you having a great weekend.
